Secondary Reading Descriptive Study, 1973-74.
Elligett, Jane K.
The purpose of this study was to provide descriptive information about the Pinellas County (Florida) Reading System (PCRS) as adapted by individual schools for selected pupils in the seventh and eighth grades. The results of this study indicate that low achieving pupils have made fluctuating but significant gains beyond normal expectations in reading in the various PCRS programs. The results justify the tentative conclusion that at least some of the gains above expectations reflect the System's impact. A definitive conclusion must be deferred until a more highly controlled study is conducted. (The data in this study are described in narrative and table form, and the mean reading scores from each of the schools in this study are included.) (RB)
